This is being reported as a Boba Fett origin story, but that might just mean it takes place at any point between the prequels and the start of Empire Strikes Back, likely in that sweet spot between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. At one point it was reported that Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston was pitching a Boba Fett movie. Perhaps he can be lured back in the wake of Trank's departure. Simon Kinberg is also involved, presumably as producer.
Boba Fett for the fanboys. Not sure how they can make a movie out of this, its not like the comics where they will eat up any character. Can Boba Fett really carry a movie?

We already know his origin story. No thanks. Boba Fett is the most overrated SW character.

Eh if there was any character that needs an origin movie its Yoda. Boba I love but we know his origin maybe if it took place after the Sarrlack pit and when he gets out and undoing the stupid slapstick death. Not to mention it would help in the recasting theres no way there going to get the guy who played Jango and the clones all those years.

Not a fan of Boba's backstory in the prequels, was a huge disappointment when we finally gets something about him.

The movie should be a "buddy cop" type movie with Bossk.

I hate the idea of origin stories but I would definitely be on board for one about Yoda.

Wasn't there rumors of an Obi-Wan or Yoda film? Getting to see what Obi-Wan did between Epsiodes 3 and 4 would be great.

They can even cast the same actor for Obi-Wan from the prequels. He hasn't aged too badly.

It's back on.

You'll remember this was the one that Josh Trank was doing before Kinberg snitched out Trank's behavior on Fantastic Four to Kathleen Kennedy and then everything imploded.

Unlikely. That's probably entirely its own thing, whatever it is. I hope it's something to bridge the gap between VI and VII, personally.

I know everyone is down on it, but Boba Fett is a better idea than Solo.

Ew, why not Jango Fett.

Boba is so lame in Return of the Jedi. I never understood the "hype".

There could be a great Boba Fett movie out there. Maybe. It's not itching to be made, but it could.

Imagine Boba Fett, Judge Dredd style. Never takes off his mask. A caper/heist movie. Something after "Return of the Jedi," intercut with him taking up his father's mantle after Episode 2 and his escape from the Sarlacc Pitt after 6. High stakes.

It could work.
